Walking Holidays in Bournemouth
Walking in Dorset is a pleasure, Hotel Collingwood has been welcoming all types of walking groups for many years. There are countless beautiful walks right on our doorstep from the flat promenade with its breathtakingly stunning views out to sea, to the more adventurous trails over the Isle of Purbeck. Further afield there is the magical New Forest with unspoiled heathland and ancient forests to explore.
From 3 December, Bournemouth will be placed under Tier 2 restrictions, which means that only groups of people from the same household or support bubble can visit us for dining or accommodation stays.

Some of our favourite Dorset walks
Bournemouth promenade & shoreline
Hotel Collingwood is just a 5 minute from Bournemouth’s 7 miles of sandy beaches and flat promenade. This delightful walk is perfect for those who prefer a flat, undulating terrain with stunning views whichever direction you choose to go!
To the East, you can catch glimpses of the Solent and Isle of Wight, and to the West, you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Isle of Purbeck.
Durdle door walking
Walking along the Jurassic coast is not something to be missed whilst visiting Dorset. This dramatic yet stunning coastline stretches from Dorset all the way to East Devon. Our favourite section is the walk from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door for its simply stunning coastal views.
Lulworth Cove is also well worth a visit, a natural cove of azure waters on a base of pure white pebbles with a multitude of delicious restaurants and pubs offering locally sourced seafood in a charming coastal setting.
